All times are given in Central European Time (CET / UTC +1).

In cooperation with the Upper Austrian Chamber of Commerce

The power of individual technology groups and their exclusive role in shaping the future is increasingly subject to criticism. We are called upon to critically question and actively participate, instead of remaining passive victims of digital change. People and companies show how, by thinking against all rules, new paths can be taken outside the comfort zone. Developed jointly by the WKO Upper Austria and Ars Electronica, this year’s Innovation Forum will once again take place as part of the Ars Electronica Festival.

Participation is free of charge for members of the WKOÖ.
